I saw this dog tied to the lamppost at Sannomiya; I think the owner went into the shops. This dog was just barking and barking (the dog in the previous post was on the contrary waiting quietly for the mistress to come out of starbucks). He stopped barking for a while when I took his pictures, but when I got up to leave, started barking madly again. (-.-!) Very noisy dog! But I realise I like dogs quite a lot, (at least for photographing). The day before there was an Otousan brown Shiba-ken, who was strolling in front of me with his mistress. Suddenly he turned around, and kept looking back as he walked. I was like "omg, how cute, maybe he will start speaking like the dog in the advertisement anytime" and he actually opened his mouth & started to bark at me. He actually went out of his way to keep turning his head back to look & bark at me. wahahah! It was so funny I almost fell over laughing right on the pavement.
I think as I grow older, I get irritated by more and more types of people.
1. Indecisive guys.
I must admit my hubby is one of them. Small decisions like what to eat at a restaurant is usually made by me, but this isn't one of the things that irritate me, it's more of, when buying stuff for people, you can't decide, yet you have alot of input, when I suggest A and B, all cannot yet you can't come up with anything at all. I get very pissed off because I hate to shop with someone saying this cannot that cannot beside me. Eg, desserts for a housewarming lunch. Ok, it's better to buy something the houseowner likes. But whether the owner want to share the desserts with you after the meal is up to the owner right? Yet he was like, "ok that guy only eats this, but I want to eat that so how??" & i thought what kind of mentality is this? Buy something for the houseowner with a bit more sincerity can? Just buy something the houseowner likes! & I said that & he got all unhappy that I'm so curt with him. duh! & I got more and more irritated as we walked round and he shot down everything I pointed out (cos he dun feel like eating those which made me more angry) so I just kept quiet and stopped walking or suggesting anything anymore.
I mean, I of course don't expect you to take every suggestion I make, but to flat not even accept it / consider it is quite rude. or give excuses like "aiyah it's for myself only so troublesome to change". The least you can say to be polite is "oh, thanks, i'll think about it, or I'll go check". If it's for yourself, don't facebook post it, don't tweet it, don't tell every single person u did something when you actually didn't, buay paiseh meh? I guess this is kinda like claiming credit for something you didn't do which is one of the things I dislike ALOT - similar to hypocrites. At least check your data before sharing it with the world, if someone find out u are "cheating" then all your previous / future data shared will be kinda dubious whether it's really what you said it is right?
3. People who keep reposting the same picture especially in instagram
Some people post the same picture several times in a day, after making some minor adjustments they said. Then why don't you just post a final copy & insist on posting every single edit? it's frankly very irritating because it pushes other people off the timeline so I have to scroll past the same looking picture to me to get to other people who don't do such things & might have nicer pictures in fact. Which brings me to people who post pictures of EVERYTHING & ANYTHING without really a meaningful caption should also be shot. If you caption your pictures so that I know what the picture is about, at least I understand. or if its clear on first look (eg scenery shots) fine. if it's a pic of some animal in the distance that is probably a dot in the picture - why are u wasting our time? are you yourself going to relook at these nearly 10000 pictures again in future if you say it's for yourself? If for yourself, again - stop sharing in every single thing the same pic - facebook, twitter etc. if you share the pic in these areas, it's a social thing - it means you want people to look! why don't people understand the meaning of social networks?? which also = oversharing.
4. Girls who feel the need to talk & talk & talk & talk about mindless topics.
This doesn't really apply to people I meet, but more of those people who sit at the next table at cafes/restaurants or anywhere that has chairs.
Case 1. girl comes in with bf to restaurant. She is chattering endlessly from the moment she comes in & even when she is eating. about nothing in particular but just like commenting about every single thing. wtf! i'm trying to eat & your high & loud & nasal voice is giving me a headache. & I can't hear myself when I try to talk to Ryo - who can't hear me also. Which kinda ruins my meal.
Case 2: whiny school girls at the next table at starbucks. Whining about every single thing in the world. Their hair, their class, their home, their family, cash. wtf! if no money go home, don't loiter here & make noise! I'm trying to work! or another group of girls will be whining about work / bfs or something & i'm thinking why u guys so free to whine here. Get a grip & use your time to find solutions! If you are whining quietly it's fine, but u are whining loudly - which really makes me want to hit you over your head to knock you out.
Ok enough complaints - heading to 鶴橋 (Osaka's Korea town) for 焼肉 today! then tomorrow will be heading out to 伊勢 with Ryo's team for their annual retreat - as a special guest, so i'll just be a photographer for them I suppose. Looking forward!!
